today to hear the next president of the united states, mitt romney. just this week democrats gathered with the -- at their convention. they struggled with one question that really matters for americans. are you better off than you were four years ago? are you better off under this president than you were mammal years ago? president obama -- and you were four years ago? he wants another famine years. but america cannot continue with the status quo. more americans have lost their jobs under president obama than any president hundred feet -- since the great depression. the jobs numbers just came out of our august with another disappointing month with only 100,000 new jobs. just this week, when the democrats were data for their convention, we solve the nationaln debt -- national debt scope over 15- -- go over 15 trillion dollars. we have suffered from one president -- an unpresident said -- unprecedented downgrading of our credit rating. you know that debt is not the way we need to go for this future. [applause] president obama, when he was a candidate in 2018, said it was on patriotic to
to have to buy the book to get that. now, i start with this proposition. the united states, for a variety of reasons, no longer has the means to fulfill the three great dreams that have driven american politics over the last decade. one, the dream of business and wall street for deregulation and infinite profits. two, the dream of our military and foreign policy elite for global domination. three, the dream of the ordinary american for a rising living standard. now, one out of three? certainly. two out of three? maybe. three out of three? no way. now, you know, you turn on the tv at night, and you read the newspapers in the morning, and the pundits and politicians are talking about a grand bargain that must be made between liberals and conservatives, republicans and democrats, about taxes, about the budget, and it's all couched in the future of america. well, my first point here is that the bargain's already made. the deal has already been struck. that is of the three great dreams, the one that's going to go, the one that's going to go is the living standards of the american working middl

[ ♪ theme music ♪ ] [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> eliot: good evening i'm eliot spitzer is "viewpoint." after a show start thursday president obama closed the democratic convention with some soaring rhetoric in the promise of a rising middle class economy. >> obama: if you believe that new plants and factories can dot our landscape, that new energy can power our future that new schools can provide ladders of opportunity to this nation of dreamers, if you believe in a country where everyone gets a fair shot, and everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules then i need you to vote this november. [applause] >> eot: you again as the president spoke he may have already known that the august's jobs report would flatten his bump coming out of the convention and weaken his chances for re-election this fall. while most economists expected 125,000 new jobs last month, the labor department reported just 96,000 new private sec
in the united states, but done in france which is a modern labor market where i think there are some lessons. the code-talkers actually convinced the french government to do something i hope we can convince our -- co-authors actually convince the french government to do something i hope we can convince our government to do, which is to experiment with widespread unemployment services programs and look at what the effects on the labor market are not just by randomizing an individual having access to the program, but breaking france up into different geographic areas of labor markets and providing 100% of the people access in some areas, in some areas , in some areas 55%, some areas 25%. if you do that randomly, on average, if you're in an area where a lot of other people use this program, does that have a negative effect on you? what they found is in tight labor markets, basically the programs really helped people get into jobs more quickly. when the labor market is weak, is largely a game of musical chairs. one person getting a job makes another person have a more difficult time. thinking ab
states of america. >> god bless these united states. ( laughter ). >> stephen: folks, with that much in common, it's good to know they can still despise and distrust each other. folks, it's actually what they agree on that divide us the most. you see, they agree that he created obamacare. they agree that he bailed out detroit. they agree he passed the stimulus. that's where the clear choice comes. because all the republicans are saying is our country needed help, and look what balm did. obama did. well the democrats keep saying, our country needed help, and look what obama did! ( cheers and applause ) and, folks, and, folks, that vast distinction means this is not just the most important election of our lifetimes. it's actually the most important inflection of our lifetime. ( laughter ) back to you, stephen. thanks, stephen. that was good? ( laughter ) we'll be right back. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: welcome back, everybody, thank you very much. thank you. folks, i have to tell you as disturbing as watching the democrats destroy our country is, it is more upsetting to see
last week made no mention of military service members or the war the united states is still fighting in afghanistan. it's a point that tammy duckworth, a war-wounded veteran and illinois candidate for the house of representatives did not miss. >> when it comes to our men and women in harm's way, we have a clear choice on november 6th. last week mitt romney had a chance to show his support for the brave men and women he is seeking to command, but he chose to criticize president obama instead of even uttering the word afghanistan. >> and then there was one card the republicans kept so close to the vest that we never saw or heard any mention of it. it was as if their last two-term president never existed. maybe george w. bush was the invisible guy in the chair, but there was no missing the democrats last two-term president on wednesday night. if there was any card bill clinton was holding, it had to be a spade because he dug right into the accomplishments of the obama administration with a 49-minute workhorse, or donkey, of a speech. in fact, the new york giants could have taken some no

and also the united states congress weighed in asking for them to honor and allowing for freedom have religion. in the past couple of hours he was convicted of a much lower crime, that is evangelical actions toward fellow muslims. he was released for time served. we have to put that in larger context in terms of nuclear program and delicate game between diplomatic chess, israel and also iran. we're in the middle of september right now. just a couple weeks away from the u.n. general assembly. typically in september iran makes a gesture to show leniency. last year the u.s. hikers were released. this year they are releasing him although it seems a very, very small gesture for the amount of pressure the iranian president is going to be under when he goes to new york in a couple of weeks. >> heather: thank you very much leland. >> gregg: presidential race is kicking into high gear with the final campaign battles set to begin. president obama is in florida looking to pick up the state's treasure trove of 29 electoral votes. any moment he is xooptd to take the stage. ed henry is traveling wi
a record for a record high for the number of suicides in the united states military. then there are the multiple deployments that families go through, the military moms and dads waiting for their spouses to return home. romney said he spoke to the american legion and vfw, but that doesn't cut if. this is the party that practically coined the phrase, we support the troops. this is the party that demonized people who wouldn't wear the flag lapel pin. this is the party that always claimed to have the upper hand on protecting the country and national security and love of country. and accusing president obama of not being american enough and not loving the country, but mitt romney can't bring himself to n insert a paragraph about the troops in harm's way right now and have been there multiple times in his acceptance speech? i think it is the ultimate quis qualifier. here's senator john kerry addressing the issue last night. >> no nominee for president should ever fail in the midst of a war to pay tribute to our troops overseas in his acceptance speech. mitt romney, mitt
to help us stop iran. if we don't trust america to help us and the president of the united states to keep his word, we have to take action on our own. the kind of relationship netanyahu and romney have, they can get on the phone and talk to each other and talk it through. the worst of all situation would be a war against iran and israel attacks iran's nuclear weapons site and iran retaliates and the united states is drawn in, nobody wins that war. the important relationship is one that's there and been there for 40 years. >> kelly: all right. kt mcfarland, always appreciate your perception and get a picture and put it up next to yours. >> you've got it. >> jamie: kt is all navy, trust me. >> kelly: i was army. >> jamie: disappointing jobs picture, raising more fears over our fragile u.s. economy. how wall street took that news and why some are speculating that help could soon be on the way. here is a hint. the fed.

in virginia. one virginians said if you want to see barack obama re-elected president of the united states, do whatever you can for virgil goode. they challenged his spot on the ballot and they said put him on the ballot anyway, and he's going to be on the ballot unless virginia's attorney general, this guy, decides to kick virgil goode off the ballot. he's been campaigning for mitt romney including last week at the republican convention. under virginia law, he gets to decide whether virgil goode gets his name on the ballot or not. look at the headline, he promises he will be absolutely objective, absolutely objective about this whom thing. absolutely. virginia is getting three different mitt romney ads this week. virginia, ohio, new hampshire, iowa, colorado, nevada, north carolina, florida. that's it, that's the election. that is who the country is counting on to handle this decision about the presidency for the rest of us, eight states. so when stuff gets weird in one of those eight states, when something like virgil goode happens in one of those eight states, while that might be a weird si
to the population of the united states is now increasing. and it's not just white supremacies and neo-nazis. that's one of the specific investigations i did. what's more widely known are the soldiers with mentally unhealthy disorders. >> that is perhaps an entirely separate conversation. when you talk about the suicides and all those kind of things, deplorable numbers there. that said, colonel, regarding the first part of our conversation with matt, any validity to this? do you or any of your current military colleagues recognize this as a problem? >> well, there had been some problem in the past. don't forget we decided that we were going to go to war and we required a large number of troops without having the political will to have a draft and, therefore, widespread service. and anytime a society does that, you're going to have to relax the standards. and for a period of time we did have either mlax standards or standards not followed. the people who recruit soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines into the service don't have to deal with them once they're in. having said all that, at the end of t
